This distinguished gentleman, affectionately named Nathaniel Alcott, is a full-length silhouette portrait from the early 19th century. The profile is backed with a watercolor scene of foliage that is simple yet charming.
One can imagine that perhaps his likeness was captured to give as a memento to his family or sweetheart to remember him by.
His prominent pose is shown in period style clothing. Close inspection reveals hints of his frock coat, high shirt collar, and locks of hair.
The image is elegantly housed in a black frame with gilded highlights, which accentuate the portrait. The inside diameter of the frame measures; 5”by 7” and is priced at $75.00 which includes Mr. Alcott's travel fare. Please contact Carol for purchase.
